College / University
North Carolina State University (NC State) is committed to fostering an inclusive, accessible, and diverse intellectual and cultural campus experience. Multicultural Student Affairs (MSA) is one of the many units and programs across the university that facilitates and supports efforts to ensure equity and equal opportunity, offers diversity education and training, and promotes inclusive excellence among students, faculty, and staff. These units collaborate to offer programs to help ensure accountability to compliance, policy, and community care standards. They also monitor and respond to campus climate needs, facilitate equity and inclusion assessment, education, and training, and support underrepresented identity groups within the NC State community.

Our community efforts play a role in increasing the participation, retention, and success of students, faculty, and staff from underrepresented groups. They ensure that NC State is an equitable and inclusive environment, one that is free from prohibited discrimination and harassment. Together, creating a community that provides a unified, campus-wide approach ensures that students, faculty, and staff learn and work within a campus defined by the best practices.

Multicultural Student Affairs

Multicultural Student Affairs researches, designs, and implements programs that promote the academic success, retention, and graduation of all students, with an emphasis on students from underrepresented populations. Our programs and services aim to expand students' horizons while honoring their respective cultural experiences. Multicultural Student Affairs stays actively engaged and connected to the growth, learning, and research of culture.

During the 2022-2023 academic year, MSA was one of several programs that engaged in a program review. This review assisted in identifying structural and programming priorities in our effort to best align the future direction of this unit. The outcomes of this review will be an essential part of what the new Director will be expected to implement in the upcoming years, with support from the entire unit and division. As such, we are seeking candidates who will be comfortable with and capable of leading a team through this process inclusive of incorporating appropriate recommendations.
